JetHQ has added a sales office in Egypt as the Kansas City, Missouri-based business aircraft broker and consultancy continues to build on its Middle East presence. Leading the new office is Sherif Abouzeid, who has been appointed v-p of sales for Egypt.
“Sherif has a proven ability to envision working hypotheses and seeing them through,” said JetHQ founder and managing director Garett Jerde. “His understanding of the premium goods market translates well to the needs of aviation buyers and sellers. With a pipeline of opportunities in the public and private sector, he is well positioned to tap into a diverse network to benefit his clients.”
Abouzeid was most recently CEO of Cairo-based Global Countertrade & Offset, an import-export firm. He is fluent in English and Arabic and, according to JetHQ, has experience managing and expanding the relationship between a commodities company and the Egyptian Aviation Authority.
JetHQ’s Middle East operations include an office in Dubai, and Abouzeid will report to Rebecca Johnson, the company’s EMEA president. So far this year, JetHQ has added offices in India, Latin America, Mexico, and the U.S.
